What a weekend it is shaping up to be.
We are kicking the MLK weekend off with some light snow showers, but all eyes are focused on the winter storm moving through on Saturday night and Sunday.
The light snow this morning and overnight didn’t leave much accumulation besides providing some nice winter ambiance to help us kick off the weekend.
Snowshoe was the lone resort that received an inch of fresh powder, and a couple of others just picked up a dusting.
Snow is snow so we will gladly take it.
Before the winter storm arrives, you are going to find incredible conditions on the slopes today.
Kenny sent over the below image from Snowshoe this morning as he will be playing there this weekend and made the trip up last night.
He isn’t planning on making an early morning run as work calls, but he is hoping to sneak off for a few runs at lunch so be on the lookout for some content on social media.
Another one of our Ski Southeast team members – Justin – went to Beech Mountain last night and sent over a couple of awesome pictures (including the featured image of the day).
Justin mentioned that the conditions were fantastic as well.
Those awesome conditions can be found all over the region right now as things are looking incredible as we slide into the weekend.
Have I mentioned that things are incredible today and will be this weekend?

Mike did a great video tour of the resorts late yesterday on Facebook, and it is definitely worth a watch.
Mike is playing hooky today and making the trek to Winterplace to play on the snow there so be sure to give him a shout if you are headed that way today.
As for this weekend, we are getting excited as confidence grows that we will see some significant snow between Saturday and Monday area-wide.
Some of the first-call snow forecasts are calling for up to two feet of snow in some mountain locations.
Brad is in overload mode as Charlotte is in the heart of a potential icy mess, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him provide us with a Skier’s Forecast update within the next 24 hours – especially as the totals are coming more in focus.
It is going to be awesome.
That does it for today, but until next time, #ThinkSnow!
